HOPE for a CURE~VT Relay For Life 2012

Relay For Life is a support and encouragement to families and individuals who have been touched by the challenges of living with cancer and in memory to those whose cancer struggle has ended. 

Virginia Tech is where we “Relay For Life” every year. VT was the top fund-raiser among universities in 2011, raising more than $600,000, and the student planned and implemented event is an inspiring experience.

This year every person at the microphone began by saying, Why I Relay...“. The answers included “because of my mother …grandmother …roommate …uncle …father… friend…sister…brother, etc.”

As I look at the energetic, dedicated, youthful faces around me, who will walk, run, and stay up all night for this event, I am struck with the thought that perhaps it will be from this generation that a CURE will be found…
